The urologic conditions and treatment options for women vary significantly, because women have different anatomy and hormonal milieu than men. Over the past ten years there has been significant advances in the field of   Female Pelvic Medicine and reconstructive surgery (FPMRS). These advances include a better understanding of the disease processes and management options. Furthermore, several guidelines for management have been developed as a result of numerous evidence-based studies to guide the clinician.

Common Urologic conditions which fall within the domain of Female Urology include: recurrent urinary tract infections, overactive bladder, pelvic organ prolapse, urinary incontinence, urethral syndrome, urinary fistula, interstitial cystitis (Bladder Pain Syndrome), urethral diverticula, female urethra stricture and female sexual dysfunction. 

Female urologic disorders affect a large portion of the population. Female Urology also known know as Female pelvic medicine is a broad field.
